Why is it so Hard to Get Rid of Pests?

Any homeowner who has ever had a pest infestation in their house will tell you that it’s no easy task to get your clean again. No matter what tricks and methods you try, it seems like there’s always a few pesky bugs that survive -- and those few stragglers soon turn back into another full-blown insect-led assault on your house. So, why do so many homeowners fail when it comes to eradicating pests? Here are some reasons:

Not Addressing the Real Problem

Many people fail to realize that an infestation is often a sign of bigger problems afoot. Sure, the bugs made it into your house, but why are they staying there? Most likely there’s a source of food or water that they have access to -- and you might not even be aware of it. Or, you might not be doing the best job of cleaning up after yourself. In any case, keeping your house bug-friendly means that even a few leftover survivors can breed and turn into your next infestation.

Not Cleaning Up

Some bugs die, and that’s the end of it. Other bugs, however, may leave behind egg sacks when they die. When you kill the bug, you leave behind the next generation of invader, and you might not even know it! After bringing about your bug apocalypse, make sure you take the time to clean up the mess that the bodies leave behind. You might just be averting future disasters.

Not Realizing How Hardy Bugs Can Be

Honestly, one of the main issues that comes with getting rid of bugs is just the fact tht many species of bugs are really, really good at surviving. You’ve probably heard the saying that roaches can survive anything -- even a nuclear war! Well, that saying is based at least in truth. These bugs have been around for millions of years for a reason: they are just that hard to kill. So, don’t be surprised if they are capable of handling whatever you throw at them.

Of course, the biggest mistake might be not getting the help you need when faced with an infestation. If you are dealing with an infestation, don’t hesitate to contact us at Orange Enviromental Services today!
